We’re so excited to be launching our new 'Colourful Confetti' range - we think it’s something pretty special! We’ve collaborated with local Brighton (well, Hove actually) designer Katie Housley to bring you a bright, fun and fresh collection of new Wedding in a Teacup goodies. Katie and Hester have actually known each other for over 15 years (eek!) they met at college in London, and then headed to Sussex University together (and they’ve both stuck by the seaside since..)
After graduating, they went into fashion buying before Hester launched Wedding in a Teacup at the end of 2011 after seeing a gap in the market for creative wedding details following her own wedding planning. Katie launched Katie Housley Stationery in 2015 after the birth of her second child. They both regularly meet for ‘play dates’ (Hester now has a two year old, too) and the talk is often dominated by the highs and lows of juggling a family and a business - and this is where the colourful confetti collection was born!
Katie hand painted the joyful confetti design. With a flurry of hearts, four-leaved clovers and horseshoes interspersed with bright abstract elements, we wanted to create a celebratory, pretty but also modern design. Contrasting this exclusive print with bold black fonts and firm lines, Hester turned it into a bridal party notebook collection, stationery suite, pocket mirrors and a confetti envelope... A new product for us, these bridal party notebooks are the perfect hen do gift or a very cute way to ask ‘will you be my bridesmaid’? Printed in the UK on high quality paper, they are available for the whole wedding party.
